Posing Tips for Brides

Don’t pay to much attention to what you see in fashion and bridal magazines, those photography sessions can last for hours in order to produce one perfectly polished image.

The one thing that people love to see in photo’s is personality and genuine emotion.

As far as posing here are a few tips:

  1. Try to stand at 45 degrees to the camera and turn your head and shoulders towards the lens.
  2. Put your weight on your back foot so your foot closest to the camera is only just touching the ground, which will give you a nice feminine bend in your front leg.
  3. Slightly bend towards the camera from your hips and keep your chin up. This will prevent the double chin commonly seen in “selfies”…
  4. Your Boquet is a nice prop to be used in photo’s but it shouldn’t overshadow the beautiful dress you are wearing, so hold it in a relaxed fashion and not like a school kid would hold up a merit certificate infront of assembly.
  5. You don’t always have to make eye contact with the camera, to be honest once you get the formal portraits out of the way you can just interact with each other, cuddle, kiss, talk and laugh and the magic will happen all on it’s own. A good photographer will direct you on the day if there is something they feel will make a good shot, so no need to overthink things to much.

Wedding Flowers

Bringing a Brides Pinterest Board to life requires many months of planning, organising and attention to detail.

Flowers, Bouquets, Table settings, The Cake and Jewellery to name a few and don’t forget Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue. Only a bride (or a very involved Groom) can understand the thought that goes into each and everyone of these projects.

The following images are a tribute to the “Details” of the Wedding Day..

Tai & Moon’s Wedding Day

Wow! Cook Islanders know how to throw a party. Over 400 guests, a sea of floral tea shirts, floral headbands, fruit platters an Island band and the belting out of some well known Maori songs I enjoyed but couldn’t quite understand…. and that was just the service.

Tai & Moon held their wedding at Nurragingi Reserve in Blacktown which was somewhere I hadn’t photographed before and definitely a place I’d like to get back to and explore some more photo opportunities.

It was nice to see such a big focus on family, culture and food throughout the day. Tai and Moon were so easy going and incredibly relaxed on what was a long, hot day… Congratulations to you both!
